One of a trio of wines from the Slovenian winemaker, these are Matic’s first crack at making piquette, apparently, but the results are those of a seasoned pro! 100% Blaufränkisch. Unfined, unfiltered, and undisgorged (so take care in opening the crown cap –- don’t want to stain the curtains). Notes of dark cherry & berries, orange zest, pine.


Matija Žerjav a. k. a. Matic is the third generation of winemakers, and was only 24 when he took over the management of his family vineyards and winery. In the predominantly white wine region of Štajerska (lower Styria), close to the borders with Austria and Hungary, Matic cultivates 9 hectares of vineyards using organic and biodynamic methods. Matic does not use any additives in the vineyard or cellar. His wines are all wild yeast fermented and bottled with minimal sulfites, and some with zero added sulfites. Matic prefers skin contact maceration and loves to experiment with various fermentation vessels, clay amfora, cement eggs, and traditional neutral barrels. Matic is a master in production of bottle fermented method ancestral aka pet-nat.
